She has her degrees in immunology, microbiology, biochemistry, molecular chemistry and genetic engineering. She specializes in immune deficiency
diseases and cancer. She's been working for renown hospitals and for a globally recognized university lab for the past several years. Her student
loans are massive, and while her heart has always been in academia, she couldn't resist the salary increase and the opportunity to be a trail blazer
in this new and up in coming technology.
I can't tell you what company she's working for, due to her "Confidentiality Agreement", or even what exactly she'll be doing. But I can tell you
this, she'll be taking an ill patients blood and isolating the T-cells. The T-cells are the Gestapo of your body. They find "bad guys" and do away
with them; no arrests, no lawyers, no trial or jury of their peers, "BANG, YOUR DEAD" right on the spot, no questions asked. Sometimes, however, the
T-cells get confused
and think that things like your kidneys' or your colon cells are bad guys, and they go on the attack. This is what we
know as "Immune Deficiency Disease".
What she will be tasked with is taking those confused T-cells and returning them to their wholesome selves, through genetic engineering. Then she'll
put them in some kind of culture medium, allowing them to grow and reproduce, then shoot them back into the ill patient's blood stream. Hopefully,
the healthy wholesome T-cells can now do the job that they were intended to do, and all will be well in the patient's world!
Cool huh? Now, she's given a base starting salary, but her job security, salary raises and bonuses are completely dependent on the success of her
work. And, that's the purpose of this thread.
It's not the fact that I'm the proudest parent on the face of the planet and wanted to brag,
even though that's true. Nope, it's because I wanted to let you all know this.............................
NOT ALL BIG PHARMA WANTS TO KEEP YOU SICK AND ADDICTED!
Soon, the USA is going to have access to a vaccine for lung cancer, thanks to Cuban medical research scientists. And now this too! Of course, right
now the treatments my daughter will be working on are not for ordinary people like you and me. A colleague of mine opined, when I told her about
this, "So, that how Magic Johnson does it!" I don't know about that, but anything is possible! My sister was concerned about reproduction after such
treatment, but I'm pretty sure that T-cells and reproductive "gamma" cells don't interact.
So, comment, don't comment, I can't really tell you much more than I already have. I just wanted to share some medicinal hope with you all today.
